Marble House Project
Nurturing the Imaginative Spirit
Marble House Project is a multi-disciplinary artist residency program that fosters collaboration & the exchange of ideas by providing an environment for artists across disciplines to live and work side by side. Their residency program is uniquely curated to bring together a diverse group of artists to facilitate exchange of different expertise, histories, techniques and perspectives. With a focus on conservation of natural resources, integration of small-scale organic food production and the arts, residents sustain their growth by cultivating and participating in the surrounding grounds, working on their artistic vision and forging partnerships within the community. Marble House Project is founded on the belief that the act of creating, whether in the studio or in nature, is how human potential expands and community thrives.
"Absolutely gorgeous and amazing people. A must for people who love arts, historic preservation, and the green mountain state."Anjanette DeCarlo (source)
Every Tuesday from May through October, the Artists-in-Residence at Marble House Project present work to the public through our ART-Seed event. Presentations, performances, and open studios are developed by the artists and include works in progress, as well as completed works, across all disciplines represented at Marble House Project. ART-Seed is a cornerstone of our residency program, serving both our artists and our local community. ART-SEED is free and open to the public.

Marble House Project is committed to sustainable practice and the conservation of natural resources. On our farm, we strive to grow as much of our own organic food as possible to meet the needs of our residency program and events we host within our facility. We respect our soil and watershed, so we never use chemical fertilizers or pesticides. We maintain a low-waste campus by conserving water and energy, composting, recycling and locally sourcing materials and labor. Many of our residents choose to deepen their awareness of our practices by participating in the planting and harvesting in our gardens.
